cheesy? yes. true? also yes.
dogs need tags. they can't talk. the only time they get out is the day after their bath, when they're not wearing their collars or tags, so they should also be microchipped. seriously, these things keep dogs (and cats) alive. mac sports two tags here- his license and his name tag, and is also chipped (invisible).
since mac's not allowed to die, here is is, living, and wearing things that enable him to live.
also, mac is my life. seriously.
